ROURKELA: With the State Government deciding to go ahead with the ESIC medical college and hospital atBhubaneswar, the Opposition parties are gearing up to renew their agitations.

This has put an end to the hopes of the residents of Sundargarh district who had been fighting for the facility. Since Sundargarh district is central in the dense industrial area, the facility would have o benefited Jharsuguda, Sambalpur and Keonjhar as well, which have the highest number of insured persons.

Social activist Bideshini Patel flayed the BJD Government for neglecting western districts in matters of advanced healthcare.

Orissa CPM secretariat member and State CITU general secretary Bishnu Mohanty claimed that they have not abandoned the demand and an action committee, involving various trade unions and apolitical organisations, has been formed to pursue the demand.

Criticising the State Government, Mohanty said the private Hi-Tech Medical College and Hospital atRourkelacould in no way compensate the advanced healthcare needs of the working class and poor population. He asserted that they would fight for the cause tooth and nail. Newly-appointedRourkelaunit Congress president Nihar Ray also blamed the local  minister and described the State Government’s decision as politically  motivated.
